Brett Kahr has published Coffee with Freud, part of the Karnac Books “Interviews with Icons” series, in which he resurrects Sigmund Freud for a “posthumous interview” in which he discusses his life and work.  The book contains a great deal of unpublished or little-known historical material about Freud derived from Brett’s interviews with some of the last surviving Freud students and associates and from archival information contained in the Sigmund Freud Papers at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.


His earlier book in this same series, Tea with Winnicott, has now appeared in Spanish translation as Tomando el Té con Winnicott.

Brett’s essay on “Sexual Cruelty in the Marital Bed:  Unconscious Sadism in Non-Forensic Couples” has appeared in French translation in the psychoanalytical journal Dialogue.  The English version will appear in the forthcoming book on Sadism:  Psychoanalytic Developmental Perspectives, edited by Balint colleague, Amita Sehgal.

Brett has also written an historical essay for the Oxford University Press website on “Winnicott’s Banquet of 1966”, to mark the publication of The Collected Works of D.W. Winnicott in twelve volumes, edited by Lesley Caldwell and Helen Taylor Robinson on behalf of the Winnicott Trust (
